The Friday 56, The Woman Who Wouldn't

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The book this week is The Woman Who Wouldn't by Gene Wilder. I just pulled it off the library shelf. I don't know anything about it. Not even what it's about. I just liked Wilder's other book so I wanted to read this one too.

The sentence:

"She's more afraid of us than you are of her, Clara. I promise."
"I'm sorry. It's just that it took me by surprise. We don't have many deer in Brussels."

I'm afraid of a lot of things but deer isn't one of them. Surprises are though so I guess I can see her point.
